Josh Shinner, Photographer + Videographer
Josh is one of our favorite photographers. The main subjects for his work are beautiful humans looking happy in beautiful clothing. In other words: fashion editorials. He’s worked with big name magazines like Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, T Magazine and Esquire. Did we mention he also shot the videos for pop music duo Oh Wonder?
When he isn’t clicking the camera or filming, he is probably listening to David Bowie (who is his dream co-pilot), thinking about space, or drinking an old-fashioned.
